The Retreat at Old Vinings Lake
The Retreat at Old Vinings Lake in Mableton was built by Traton Homes in 2001 and finished construction in 2004. It’s a swim and tennis community with 304 homes. There is a 17-acre stocked lake with a recreational trail.
The location is just south of the East West Connector on Cooper Lake Road. Home prices are between $300,000 and $400,000.
The neighborhood is very diverse, with lots of young families. In the summers, food trucks will show up that guests can enjoy. At major holidays like Labor Day, each street will have a potluck dinner block party. When Halloween time comes, there is a parade for all the kids to display their costumes.
Neighbors enjoy fitness sessions together, and a babysitting co-op. There are also adult-only parties at the clubhouse.
“I love the location because it’s close to the interstate and only 10-15 minutes to Vinings and Midtown,” says resident Nicole Heyward. “My kids love the splash pad and walking trails.
